Well, I finally got the aft Head
bulkhead out after removing the rest of the Port deck
frames and pulling the House frame up.
Of course, there was some rot
as expected. The rib
is gone down to just above the keel
I stuck a screwdriver in it easily..
The bulkhead tie is rotten and broken as well.
The rest of the ribs and planking look pretty good. There are a couple of cracked ribs but the sisters that are in place are still fine. No telling how many years ago this was done. I haven't decided to pull and replace those cracked ribs yet.
I am thinking of replacing all of the chainplates.
This glove is a reminder of not wearing gloves when running machinary. I was jointing when it grabbed the glove. I yanked the hand away when I felt the tug and missed getting a nasty boo boo.
I have to pull this Chainplate Partner to get the clamp out.
Lot's of work yet to do on this old girl... Anybody wanna run up to Bellingham and get dirty?
